[edit] Description

BWF MetaEdit allows extraction, validation, editing as well as embedding of metadata in Broadcast WAVE Format (BWF) files. Furthermore, it can be used to embed MD5 checksums into the BWF file and to report certain errors in WAVE files. Validation of metadata is possible via a ruleset [1] based on technical specifications by the European Broadcast Union (EBU), who developed the BWF format, by Microsoft, as the format is based on WAVE, as well as by ISO for metadata content such as country codes. The validation rule set also contains conformance testing against the Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initative (FADGI) recommendations. Each rule can be either enforced or disabled, allowing for validation towards standard as well as policy compliance.

This tool was developed in 2010 for the Library of Congress and other federal government agencies by the Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FAGDI) and is supported by AVPreserve. Written in C++. BWF MetaEdit is in the public domain.

[edit] Platform

BWF MetaEdit is configured for command line and GUI for Windows/PC, Macintosh, and several major Linux distributions (Debian, ubuntu, redhat, CentOS, fedora, openSUSE, Mandriva).
